The group says monetary donations are not necessary.

"We currently don't accept any monetary donations. Donations of fabrics, supplies, or service are welcome. The reason why we don't accept monetary donations is because we don't want anyone to feel obligated, burdened, or bad when picking up these masks," the group wrote on Facebook. "Please don't go out of your way to purchase fabric at retail price for us. Stretch the dollar for more masks at wholesale price."
